Flynn describes "Circle The Drain" as the anti-Valentine's Day song.

"The song is inspired by an acquaintance of mine who returned from Afghanistan only to have his relationship fall apart with his girl," he says. "She had messed around on him, then got paranoid about him messing around on her, and drove him crazy. We had a conversation on Valentine's Day and he said to me, 'They were just circling the drain.' … The phrase struck me. A few days later I incorporated it into the song I'd been working on.

"It was a strange parallel with my life at the time, having recently had two bandmembers quit, and even more bizarrely, two long-time couple friends of my wife and I, also divorce. It was break-up season, and it played out with friends taking sides, people not being invited to certain events anymore, social and emotional pressure, and all the typical stuff that happens when a relationship goes bad.

"Watching this guy pull through it helped me pull through my own upheaval. The lyrics to 'Circle The Drain' came out of that frustrating time. It's a sad song about relationships gone bad, but accepting that it's over, and making yourself move on. It's written in a more metaphorical tone, as I didn't want it to be about my life, but to be about anybody's life who may be going through a rough time. It may not be a song that connects with everyone, especially those in a solid relationship, but if the day ever comes when your life goes awry, this song will be a lifeline for you, something to help pull you up out of that dark place.

"The irony that he and I had the original conversation on Valentine's Day, and are now releasing it on Valentine's Day isn’t lost on me. It really is the anti-Valentine's Day song."

Sveti Trifun je umro za ovo.

Urnebesna muzika. Lirici ne toliko kao prošli singl, ali nije ni razočarao. Get the fuck away from me!

sad sam opet otvorio ovu Do Or Die, jedna od jačih comment sekcija na metal spotovima definitivno :haha:

Spoiler

song in a nutshell:
let freedom ring with a twitter rant

The only good thing about this song is that Rob mentioned Strapping Young Lad.

"Ignore the hate" and "My hate is real" in the same chorus. Just uh, pointing that out.

When mom takes away a kids fortnite.

This is the most “You’re not my dad” sounding song I’ve ever heard

How cringe you want this song to be?
Robb: Yes
